One of my favorite go to dishes would have to be a beef Wellington with a tart cherry jus and onion white bean purée. I love the way the sweetness of the tart cherries mesh with the white beans and the pastry soaking up a multitude of flavors creating a perfect blend of flavors.

that sounds really good, bmh. do you have a tnt recipe to post? i'm intimidated by making beef wellington, nevermind the extras.

for my signature dish, i'll have to go with the ones most requested by my family and friends/coworkers: sunday gravy, manhattan clam chowder, seafood fra diavolo, london broil with shanghai bok choy sauce, dirty pork chops and vinegar peppers, split pea soup with ham, and a pepperoni and egg sandwich.

Chickens always been my go to dish, I love chicken best, except for a good lamb roast lol. I started roasting chicken for our family Sunday dinners (upward of 15 people) when I was 10. I am a control freak in the kitchen so I would spend all day preparing all the food for a full roast chicken dinner, mum had a huge oven so there would be three or four birds roasting with all the roast veg and mashed potato and steam veg to go and usually the good ol Edmonds recipe book ' one egg chocolate sponge, but it would be four egg cause I would quadruple it and make it in a roasting pan. Now days I lean more to asian influence so my go to recipe is a master stock chicken with chicken rice and a salad. It is easy and quick and lived by all except my mum the diabetic who misses her crunchy fatty chicken skin.

The stock is easy - I don't measure much but here goes,
1c Chinese rice wine
1/3 cup light soy
Tbls fish sauce or shrimp paste
Heaps of garlic
Heaps of ginger
Onions
Tsp coriander seed
Tsp cumin
Small piece cinnamon
4-6 star anise
Enough water to cover the chicken
Bring to the boil and steep for half hour or so
Add chicken to boiling water, turn off heat
Half an hour turn heat on and bring stock back to the boil then turn off again.
At the end of one full hour your chicken, unless it's an Emu, will be cooked, I know I didn't believe it either but it works I even used a large duck and it was still one hour
Take chicken out rub a mix of soy and sesame oil over the whole chicken and cover with foil to rest
Put quantity of rice in rice cooker and use enough of the stock as per rice cooker directions or like my mum showed me, till it reaches the first joint of your thumb and cook the rice. Make a salad and serve up. Mmmm want some now.

Sorry I couldn't figure out how to link this.

I can't think of a signature dish--I don't cook everyday, don't have a family, so cooking for one, well, one does odd things sometimes. I don't usually make the same thing again for a long time...and, I'm an "opportunity" type of cook and one who doesn't measure except when baking or making ice cream...otherwise, I go by taste and I take what I have on hand/is in the garden/on special and run with it. However, my breakfasts might just be my "signature" dish since that's what I seem to be cooking most often lately.

Laurie: Thanks for the Fabulous Post

Buon Giorno Laurie,

If I had to choose only 1 dish, it would have to be my all time favorite Lasagne, which I prepare in several ways.

Lasagne alla Melanzane ... ( Filled with eggplant, ground veal, ground pork and is made with both home made white lasagne sheets and spinach green lasgane sheets ...

Photo being attached.

Kind regards and Hope you had a lovely Canada Day.
Margaux Cintrano.

Baby Mediterranean Octopus

Laurie,

Attached is a photo of a Greek Octopus dish, with a modern slant ... The ingredients are:

Fresh baby octopus
cardamon pods - green
juniper berries
coriander seed
star anise
allspice berries
fresh thyme herb
Red wine
bay leaf
black pepper

This dish is called: Octopus in Wine, Sous Vide

SOUS VIDE: to seal a portion of seasoned food in a vaccum bag and bake for 2 hours in a steam overn at 65 degrees centigrade or 149 farenheit. Then the food item is removed and put into shock in an ice bath to cool down ... This process works as a tenderizer.

I had been truly pleased to have had the opportunity to learn how to prepare this dish several years ago ... The dipping sauce is made with the ingredients listed above. The octopus flesh is a bit thicker than a carpacchio however, extremely tender ...

Have a lovely 4th,
Margi
